Big Boi vs. Janelle Monae

I've only run two editions of the "Favors" segment, but I'm already shaking things up. This one's all about Big Boi and the crazy talent that he discovered and labeled up, Janelle Monae. That's pretty much the extent of Purple Ribbon that's left, ain't it? Sucks that the rest of them didn't work out, but at least Janelle's a keeper.

She debuted on Big's record label compilation, Got Purp, Vol. 2, with two song features by the names of "Time Will Reveal" and "Lettin' Go". With a little help from Diddy and Bad Boy, the rest is history.

Big Boi - Call the Law (feat. Janelle Monae)
Big Boi - In Your Dreams (feat. Killer Mike, Janelle Monae, & Sleepy Brown)
Janelle Monae - Tightrope (feat. Big Boi)
Big Boi - Be Still (feat. Janelle Monae)

The duo's musical hook-ups surfaced on OutKast's Idlewild, Janelle's The ArchAndroid, and Big Boi's brand new Sir Lucious Left Foot. Their individual sounds are absolutely monstrous and it's just another level of epicness when they join forces. He raps. She sings. And the records speak for themselves.

... and do the John Wall.
